Abraham and Sarah's Tent

By Edgar M. Bronfman, Beth Zasloff

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), November 2008

The authors assert that Judaism is now a choice, even for Jews, not a condition. As such, it is easy to identify oneself as a Jew, but it is just as easy not to. Welcoming guests was so important to Abraham that he even interrupts God to greet three strangers. We should take the same approach to those who approach the tent of Jewish life, no matter what their parentage.
